We start our 2019 fantasy rankings with catchers. As usual, it’s light on impact performers and heavy on guys who will hit 15 home runs with a .230 batting average. It’s just the nature of the catching position. Fantasy players always struggle with whether to play the scarcity game and take a catcher early or just grab one or two guys late and hope for the best. In the end, either strategy can work but the math does suggest the legitimacy for taking an elite catcher early. But if you’re like us, it’s just hard to do it.
